The space
Carey and I have been farming in the Catlins for just over 20 years now. We have gradually built our farming operation from 320 acres to 2,000 acres over this period.

Five years ago we purchased some land which connected beautifully with our main farm boundary. This part of the farm captured beautiful views of the Catlins Lake and has some amazing history associated with it in regard to an old railway station which used to operate on the flat paddocks directly in front of the homestead. We have taken this opportunity to provide the house as accommodation and to name it "Catlins River Station after the old railway.

Since taking this house over we have opened up the lounge and kitchen/dining area so that it offers a more spacious area for guests to relax.

The alterations continued with the addition of a fantastic deck. One end is covered so that guests can utilise it in all weather situations.

Guest access
We encourage guests to utilise the tracks we offer on our property if they wish to go walking, running or biking. We will issue a farm map if requested to point out these areas.

Our outdoor BBQ area situated beside the Catlins River is becoming a popular spot for guests to visit and experience. This is no ordinary BBQ. It requires a fire being lit to heat the large plate for cooking. We also have a brazier there which guests have enjoyed roasting marshmellows on. This is a wonderful spot for kayaking and swimming. We have several kayaks available for guest use. Life Jackets will be issued upon request.

The Catlins River is well known for trout fishing. Bring your fishing rod and try your luck. (Please Note the Trout season runs from the 1st October - 30th April)

This area is a favourite spot on our farm which our family utilises a lot over the summer season. It is a lovely, safe spot for families and we do encourage you to experience it for yourself.

Other things to note
We recently opened our own on farm butchery - please feel free to contact us if you wish to purchase some fresh lamb cuts.

Please note cell phone reception is very minimal at the house but good service is available about 200m down the driveway.
